    I had to keep that review short because somebody was knocking on my door...

    So, I bought one yesterday.

    Last night around 8:30 I took it into the garage and waited for the damn blood suckers to show up. I read the directions and fired it up. In less than 15 minutes the mosquitoes were totally gone... I could not believe it. The thing gives off small whisps of smoke but it bascially does not smell like anything.

    I'm going to get the 3 pack of refills for it the next time I'm across the river at GM...

    I need to try on of those. I went to check a trailcam yesterday afternoon and the mosquitos and deer flies were feasting on me.

    I just used one on my family vacation in Maine. While fishing at dusk it really kept the mosqitoes away. I forgot it one night and the number of bugs was unbelievable. I give the Thermacell a thumbs up!

    I'm amazed at how well it works. I may get the holster as well since then I can hang it on my fanny pack.

    $20,000 ??? WHo did you finance through ? Did you get a good rate ?

    Man, I only paid $24 for mine...

    The refills are $20 for 3 butane tanks and I think 12 pads with the chemical on them... I think I saw the holster for $10, which actually looks pretty sturdy and holds extra supplies.

    Oh, that was at GM... May be able to find them cheaper but with gas at $3+ a gallon I was not going to drive around pricing a $20-$25 item.

    I've had great success using the Thermacell. There are places I would not hunt without one

    For all of you who know where a lot of the little blood suckers are. Please do a feild test for use. Try the Dryer sheets and report back. I know the 20 dollar gaget works but if the dryer sheet works just as good then would it not be cheaper to buy a box of 25 sheets for 2.50? Just hange 1 or 2 out of your back pocket. I love the new toys also but this works for those who have tryed it, and it pisses off your wife so be careful.
